September Meeting – Permeability and Capillary Pressure
1st September 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
The next meeting of the Dutch Petrophysical Society will be at the Kivi building in Den Haag on Thursday 1st September. The theme of the meeting will be
“Permeability and Capillary Pressure”
At the meeting we will present two talks by Iulian Hulea (Shell) and Albert Hebing (Panterra)
HETEROGENEOUS CARBONATE RESERVOIRS: ENSURING CONSISTENCY OF SUBSURFACE MODELS BY MAXIMIZING THE USE OF SATURATION HEIGHT MODELS AND DYNAMIC DATA
Iulian Hulea, Shell
Attempts to characterize carbonate reservoirs follow various rock-typing methods that focus on Special Core Analysis (SCAL) output where core-derived permeability and capillary pressures play a central role. Given the late stage in a project where these results typically become available, integration with dynamic measurements such as wireline formation testing and well testing data is often overlooked. Mobilities derived from formation testers can be compared to permeabilities obtained from various averaging methods. Where no core permeabilities are available, a permeability curve may be derived based on the capillary pressure data that is already part of the model.
Laboratory Test Methods for Determining Capillary Pressure Data
Albert Hebing – Laboratory Manager – PanTerra Geoconsultants
Core capillary pressure data provide fundamental input to reservoir models and saturation-height functions that in turn are necessary to calculate STOIIP and initialise reservoir simulation models. As SCAL data experiments are seen as the “ground truth” in formation evaluation, it is therefore important that the appropriate test method is selected, and correct data interpretation is done.
This DPS presentation is to give an overview of the various analytical techniques that are employed in the industry to obtain Pc lab data, and the advantages and limitations of each individual method.
Albert has a BSc in Petroleum Engineering from the Heriot-Watt University.
From 1989 till 1995, Albert worked at Core Laboratories Netherlands and Norway, performing special core analysis measurements and setting up labs.
Since 1995, Albert is working for PanTerra Geoconsultants BV, as Laboratory Manager, where he setup and developed the SCAL, PVT and EOR labs at PanTerra.
Currently, Albert is mainly involved in designing analytical programs, planning and controlling the resources and activities of the laboratories, QA, business development and has a technical advisory role in core analysis. In addition to this, Albert still participates in the major SCAL and EOR projects within PanTerra for acquisition, evaluation and implementation of petrophysical SCAL/EOR measurements, data review and audits.
After the talks there will be the opportunity to socialise with fellow professionals over drinks and snacks.
Doors will open for registration and coffee at 3:30 pm and the talks will commence at 4:00 pm. The social hour will begin at 5:30pm.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsor Shell, attendance will again be free. However please inform us of your intention to attend before 29th August 2016 by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, position and affiliation.
